A Harry Potter Theory Might Fix A Major Dumbledore Problem In The Goblet Of Fire

The theory that Albus Dumbledore chose to put Harry Potter into harm’s way — multiple times and throughout three very dangerous “tasks” — in the Triwizard Tournament is definitely interesting, but some Redditors didn’t quite agree. In the books and in the film, it’s explained that once a name is drawn from the Goblet of Fire, the magical object that chooses Triwizard champions, a “magical binding contract” is placed upon the person; it’s strongly suggested that the penalty for breaking said contract could be death or something equally dire. As Redditor u/zoobatron__ responded, “No Dumbledore definitely did not want Harry to compete but respected the rule of law in the situation that he had to compete (yeah I know the “he has to compete” thing is kind of silly). He knew someone wanting to cause Harry harm had put Harry’s name in and was trying to work out who it was.”

Other Redditors, like u/sT4ry_n1GhtS, did agree with the original poster, but had one reservation: how could Dumbledore have foreseen the fact that his Defense Against the Dark Arts professor Mad-Eye Moody (Brendan Gleeson) was actually Death Eater Barty Crouch Jr. (David Tennant) all along, who was working behind the scenes for Voldemort? “I think you could be onto something, as in the books, it seems like [Dumbledore] was expecting this, but in the movies, he was very angry,” they wrote. “Or at least he appeared to be so. We already know he is a very good actor, so it could be likely. I just don’t see how he could have manipulated Barty [Crouch Jr.].”
